if you're running on win2K you can get CDO to do this for you.  something
like (watch for wrapping):

' include this at the top of your file:
   <!--metadata type="typelib" uuid="CD000000-8B95-11D1-82DB-00C04FB1625D" name="CDO for Windows 2000 Type Library" -->

   set objEmail = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Message")
   set objConf  = Server.CreateObject("CDO.Configuration")

   set objFields = objConf.Fields

   objFields.Item(cdoSendUsingMethod)           = cdoSendUsingPickup
   objFields.Item(cdoSMTPServerPickupDirectory) = "d:\inetpub\mailroot\Pickup"
   objFields.Item(cdoFlushBuffersOnWrite)       = true

' if you want to send via a port...
'   objFields.Item(cdoSendUsingMethod)           = cdoSendUsingPort
'   objFields.Item(cdoSMTPServer)                = "your smtp server here"

' if you need to authenticate
'   objFields.Item(cdoSMTPAuthenticate)          = cdoBasic
'   objFields.Item(cdoSendUserName)              = ""
'   objFields.Item(cdoSendPassword)              = ""

   objFields.Item(cdoSendUserReplyEmailAddress) = sFrom
   objFields.Item(cdoSendEmailAddress)          = sFrom

   set objEmail.Configuration = objConf
   objEmail.From     = sFrom
   objEmail.Subject  = sSubject
   if len(sAttach) > 0 then objEmail.AddAttachment sAttach
   if inStr(lcase(sEmail), "<html") > 0 then objEmail.HTMLBody = sEmail else objEmail.TextBody = sEmail

   objEmail.To = """" & strToName & """ <" & strToAddress & ">"""

   set objEmail  = nothing
   set objFields = nothing
   set objConf   = nothing

the documentation on msdn is pretty good for this.
